Finally joining the club with my first Leatherman, a Blast! Wasn't an easy decision as multitools are pretty expensive in my country (Singapore), at least compared to the USA. The Blast cost SGD$99, while a stainless steel Rebar would cost around $125 and a Wave $170. The Blast was a relatively good buy, and I think scissors won me over (compared to the Rebar).

My previous tool was a standard conscript-issue Victorinox Trailmaster One Handed. Good tool, although I never really got it to open one handed. It was my first SAK, and I remember not knowing how to disengage the liner lock when I first used it! I knew many people who cut themselves with the blade. In fact, one of my friends stabbed himself in the thigh while cutting some nylon cord while in a squat position. We have a saying: "helmets on, cannot think  :ahhh". Sadly, I dropped it during a field exercise a month before I finished my two years of conscript service, and couldn't justify getting a new one just yet. I'll probably get another one when I get called up for Reserve training. Anyway, I digress!

I know you guys like pictures :D



Really love the details on the Blast.


I was really happy with the scissors. If the Blast didn't have scissors, I would probably go with a Rebar. My previous SAK didn't have scissors either, but whipping out a blade to cut anything in public would invite unwanted attention. Hence, I find scissors really necessary for my EDC.


My Blast actually came with a some cosmetic damage to the Zytel handles. I tell myself I don't care :drink: I didn't notice it in the shop, and decided it wasn't worth the trouble to exchange the tool. At least I wouldn't feel the "first scratch" pain.


The included leather sheath was nice, but came slightly beat up. I would have preferred a nylon MOLLE sheath though, I'm used to that. It'll have the added bonus of being able to be attached to my Load Bearing Vest as well, although I'll have second thoughts about bringing it out into the field in a military context. It's too precious!


I really love my new Blast! The day after I got it, I went down to my camp's armoury to lubricate it with some Breakfree CLP gun oil. It helped with the stiffness, and I'm hoping it'll prevent rust.

Have a nice day everyone!

I just added an other Core to my collection. I found it at the pawn shop for a steal of a deal brand spanking new without a sheath. I couldn't resist taking it home at the price I got it for.

I remember when I first saw the Core, I didn't much care for it. Over time, this model has grown on me.

A little Leatherman information.
